Opening a link using "open link in new window" does not work. I can only use "open in new tab" option. Is this normal with the Firefox 4?

I really don't have any more info. When I upgraded my Firefox to the latest version I have noticed that I can 't use this Open in new window option any more. I have reinstalled the software using its US English version( first time I have chosen the UK English version) but to no avail.

Chosen solution

I fixed the problem by disabling the Yahoo toolbar extension.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
